Description

Students, faculty, staff, researchers and community members interested in becoming Wikipedians and improving the open educational content of this online encyclopedia can participate in the Libraries’ first editathon. The event will feature a short introduction to the basics of editing followed by an editing session where participants can contribute expertise to Wikipedia, receive one-on-one assistance from experienced editors and learn how to access the resources of the University of Texas Libraries, including the open access resources found in the UT Digital Repository. Free snacks will be provided.

Everyone is welcome and no previous web development or Wikipedia editing experience is required to participate. Current UT students, faculty and staff need an EID to log on to computers for hands-on access. The general public is welcome to attend without hands-on access.
